However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Radial Tonebone Cabbone Speaker Cabinet Switcher

The Cabbone is for the serious guitarist who takes great care and precision in perfecting their tone, and wants to take the customisation one step further! Forget the unruly web of cables you're used to tripping over on stage, with Slingshot? a single footswitch or another Slingshot enabled device is all you need to change a multitude of settings in one single stomp. This really is a sonic 'power tool'.

" The Radial Cabbone has made my life so much easier. Now on a session there is no hassle of switching speaker cables manually between cabs. At a click of a switch it's all done! Best of all, the Cabbone does not mess with my tone!" - Brent Mason (Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn)

Premium Speaker Cab Switcher with Gold-Contact Relays

The Cabbone offers a wealth of customisation and convenience when it comes to switching speaker cabinets between a single amplifier head. Have you ever considered running your favourite head through two separate speakers at different points during your performance, but there was no way you could do it? Your tonal dreams can now become reality with the power that the Cabbone provides, making it possible to mount a Fender Twin on a 4x12 Marshall cabinet and interchange between the two cabinets with a single foot stomp to enjoy the very different tonal characteristics of an open-back 2x12 compared to a closed-box 4x12 half stack.

High-power gold-contact relays are used during switching to ensure a 'straight wire' performance so none of your natural tone is sucked away as you might expect, and there's absolutely no introduction of distortion. Radial never compromise on audio performance, and the Cabbone reflects this perfectly.

Safe Switching and Slingshot™ Control

Radial's Safemode™ features in the Tonebone Cabbone so if the worst happens and power is lost, it's not a problem, the operation resets and connects the head to output-1, this way your amp and speakers always stay safe from damage. The Cabbone is set apart from regular AB boxes that mechanically switch between two sources, it actually 'ramps on' the switching process with a timed overlap meaning the amp always sees a speaker load. This ensures both your tube and solid state amplifiers are safely switched at all times for peace of mind and tonal heaven.

The mess of leads you're used to are a thing of the past with the Slingshot™ feature; it allows remote operation of the unit with any standard footswitch or MIDI controlled contact closure. This simultaneously reduces long speaker cables and increases system efficiency. You'll have a seriously creative utility at your feet with no wires in your way!
